Diarrhea in children

When a child becomes ill, parents become very anxious. Diarrhea is a common issue in children under the age of five. Diarrhea occurs when children have very loose, watery, and frequent bowel motions. Most children get Diarrhea on frequently. It normally doesn't persist long and usually improves on its own. Diarrhea is the body way of getting rid of pathogens, and most bouts last a few days to a week.


Diarrhea may be associated by fever, nausea, vomiting, cramping, dehydration, or even rashes. Stools may be loose or watery, and occur more than three times a day. Normally, Diarrhea occurs during the day, however up to 25% of toddlers with Diarrhea pass faeces at night. The stool could be dark, green, or yellow, and it could contain undigested food. As a parent, you must maintain calmness and, rather than panicking, help your child in the best way possible to ensure a rapid recovery.


Most cases of Diarrhea are caused by viruses. But it can also be caused by:

  • Bacteria
  • Parasites
  • Changes in diet, like drinking too much fruit juice
  • Gastrointestinal problems, like food allergies
  • Some medications



  • Breast milk can provide protection against numerous infections in the form of passive antibodies to your child.
  • Hand hygiene is improved by frequent hand washing with soap or the use of hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid giving your children raw (or unpasteurized) milk products or meals that have become contaminated or damaged as a result of being left out for an extended period of time.
  • Avoiding the overuse of antibiotics, which can disrupt healthy gut bacteria?
  • Limiting the amount of juice and sugary beverages consumed.
  • Ensure that your children have had the rotavirus vaccine, which protects against the most common cause of Diarrhea and vomiting in young children.
  • For moderate Diarrhea in older children, provide plenty of fluids (water, broth, or soup). Rehydrate their electrolytes with Pedialyte if they have moderate to severe Diarrhea.



Most bouts of Diarrhea resolve on their own after a couple of days, but if your child does not seem to be improving, contact your paediatrician.
